hi everyone I’m new here.
i was given Bisoprolol less than 2 months ago for tachycardia (120-130 bpm).
ive done countless EKGs and an echo a stress test and a 24 hr monitor, and blood tests to rule out a heart condition.
My problem is the beta blocker, when the incident happened I took Bisoprolol 2.25 mg and it helped reduce my heart rate but caused chest pain, couldn’t eat, couldn’t walk or go out I was a complete zombie.
didnt take it the next day and was fine, but the day after my heart felt like it was shaking my body with how hard it was pumping and had to go to the emergency room again and the doctor there said my heart rate wasn’t that high and that this was an anxiety attack, and I should take the Bisoprolol and gave me an appointment with the cardiologist.
went to the cardiologist and said my heart was fine and strong and that I can stop the drug any time I want and manage my stress.
I cut the pill in half (1.25 mg) cause I felt like crap on the higher dose, then a few days later boom another attack but this time I had the flu which made it 100 times worse. I thought I would die, my heart was pounding for an hour till I took my next dose.
this kept happening for a few days every night I’d wake up with a very fast heart beat and would calm down by the time I took my dose.
